Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Her Wedding Album

-On GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow shared 47 photos from her wedding to Brad Falchuk — but she didn’t caption any of the ones that feature famous people so you have to do some guessing. That’s clearly Robert Downey Jr giving a toast in #37, and Rob Lowe cutting a rug in #44.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus had a baby!

-This week’s SNL promo featured Pete Davidson making a joke about quickie engagements and Ariana Grande was NOT having it. She’s since deleted her tweets but my timeline was wild last night…

-Meanwhile, I’m very much looking forward to seeing Maggie Rogers as the musical guest. “Alaska” gets played on repeat A LOT on my phone. Here’s a recap of her best songs.

Alec Baldwin continues to behave exactly how you’d assume he would. He was arrested today for allegedly punching a man over a parking space.

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio released a voting PSA.

-Look, I think Rebel Wilson‘s rom-com spoof Isn’t It Romantic looks super fun and I adore the premise. But she really, really shouldn’t have said on Ellen, “I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.”  She can’t just erase the history of actresses who’ve starred in body-positive romances, including Queen Latifah, Mo’Nique, Toni Colette, Nia Vardalos and Ricki Lake.

Julia Roberts’ Homecoming premieres on Amazon today, and critics are in love.

-I adore the premise from the new AMC show being exec-produced by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Kevin Can F*** Himself is told from the POV of a typical “sitcom wife,” described as “a beauty paired with a less attractive, dismissive, caveman-like husband who gets to be a jerk because she’s a nag and he’s ‘funny.'” *grabby hands*

Goddamit, Hugh Jackman. You were supposed to be one of the good ones.

-I’m not sure why Amy Schumer is showing off her belly bump but here it is.

Les Mooves is calling himself “retired.” That’s one way to spin it…

-Next week we’ll find out who the new People’s Sexiest Man Alive is going to be. The Bradley Cooper speculation is strong which — if it happens — will be interesting to watch thanks to his new, reluctant movie star persona.

Tiffany Haddish is the latest celeb to enjoy Buzzfeed’s puppy interview.

Aisha Tyler recently posted a kissy photo with Emily Bett Rickards and now there’s lots of trashy stories about how they’re dating. I’d love it if it were true, but I follow both of them on Instagram and that gang is always kissing their friendsLike, a lot.

-Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse finds romance in the hospital in the trailer for Five Feet Apart.

Emma Stone Hits the Streets with Billy Eichner

-Here’s the Billy on the Street segment with Emma Stone, in which he tries to convince her to join Instagram. The girl around the 3:30 min marks slays me (“Even Will Smith is on it!”)

David Marchese interviews are always a delight, but his latest with Emma Thompson takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness. She talks about the #MeToo movement, her evolving feminism, and drops bon mots such as: “Although we mustn’t get gloomy. Lots of things are better today: dentistry.”

-Her interview-turned-dance with Stephen Colbert was also magic.

-The White Boy Rick promo tour has given Matthew McConaughey multiple opportunities to repeat his non-so-great beliefs about the “problem” with single-parent families.

-Goddamit. Aaron Paul deserves a better a show than Westworld.

-Manager Scooter Braun says he used to worry every night that Justin Bieber was going to die of an overdose. “There was a time when I would go to sleep almost every night when he had the money to fly away from me and I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him. That was the time when I was telling him he’s not allowed to work. He used to yell and scream at me and he wanted to put music out. He wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die.”

-Save us, Rihanna!

-The cast of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before wrote their own fanfiction and I would read it all…

-Oof — emails released in a lawsuit show that Warren Beatty dismissed test audiences’ initial reactions to his movie Rules Don’t Apply because they were “too ethnic.”

Norm Macdonald apologized for his “Down Syndrome” remark, tried to clarify his Roseanne/Louis C.K. comments, and added “If 500 women go against a man, obviously the guy is guilty. But with Chris Hardwick, it was one woman against one man. So, I was saying that it was good … that Chris Hardwick has been rehabilitated as he’s going to get.” Yeah, he should probably just stop now.

-Oh good, he just might.  He gave the New Yorker what he’s said may be his last-ever print interview.

-According the NYT’s new story on Les Moonves, the board only began to turn on him when they discovered, after months of assuring them the accusations were false or “grossly overstated,” that he was trying to find one of his accusers a job at CBS in exchange for her silence.

-BoJack Horseman’s Raphael Bob-Waksberg apologized for the “original sin” of casting his show with only white people.

-The Predator director Shane Black gave an emotional apology on the red carpet, telling the AP “I take full responsibility. I’m very deeply sorry…I hope I learn from this.” I hope he reached out to Olivia Munn.

-Speaking of Munn, The Predator sex offender’s victim has broken her silence to thank the actress for taking a stand on her behalf: “I was not able to speak for myself when I was 14…I am also eternally grateful for Olivia Munn’s action. She spoke up for me. She took a stance for me. In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have. To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering.”

-The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil took down a gym bodyshamer.

Lindsay Morgan from The 100 and Emily Bett Rickards from Arrow keep posting videos of them working out together and it makes my gym sessions look like naptime.

-Here’s the first full promo for Julia Roberts‘ new Amazon show Homecoming, which looks creepy af. It screened at TIFF this week and people dug it.

Arrow, Supergirl Stars Weigh in on E.P.’s Sexual Harassment Allegations

-Whoo boy. The CW, home of all my fave current shows, kind of imploded this weekend after Variety’s Mo Ryan talked to 15 women and 4 men about alleged sexual harassment from CW showrunner Andrew Kreisberg of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. (Ryan tweeted Monday: “If this story were published today, the number would be higher. I had an interesting weekend.). Among the allegations: he once told a woman “Wow, you look so tired that I don’t even want to have sex with you anymore” in front of her kids, he put his hands on a man’s hips and mimicked having sex, he asked an array of women for their bra sizes, he asked a woman to lie on his office floor while he assumed a push-up stance over her and then he asked her to choke him “for research.” He has been suspended.

Carina Mackenzie, a writer on The Originals who worked on an episode of The Flash last year, tweeted (and then deleted): “When I left The Flash I told my agents I would rather live in a cardboard box under a bridge than work with AK again…I was at that show for a few short weeks & was disturbed by the way he spoke about women, the way he treated assistants and — to be honest — even the way FICTIONAL females were discussed.” (She also defended super producer Greg Berlanti, though a writer who worked on Legends of Tomorrow for two years seems to think Berlanti knew.)

-The ladies of the CW immediately stepped up, with Melissa Benoist, Caity Lotz, Emily Bett Rickards, and Chyler Leigh releasing statements. I was particularly impressed with EBR’s tweet, because it directly addressed the Arrow showrunner’s stupid, tone deaf tweet after the story surfaced about “reverse sexism.” That’s her boss! If she gets fired (or her character suddenly gets reduced screentime/plots), we’re burning that network down…

-It took a while for the CW men to get in on the action, but eventually Arrow’s David Ramsey, and  Supergirl’s David Harewood voiced their support.  Stephen Amell waited a whole day but eventually put out a pretty boss Facebook video, saying  “I thought that it was appropriate before I spoke publicly to speak with our cast and our crew, which I got the chance to do this morning…I told them this morning and I tell you now and I meant it, if anyone ever feels anything less than 100% safe…that they should come to whomever they’re supposed to go to and that I’ll stand right beside them. I’ll speak on their behalf if need be. If you’re not an active part of the solution than you are part of the problem.”

-A writer on Hannibal (the darkest show ever) called BS on the notion that you have to act disgusting in a writers room for “research.”

-The story seems to have opened the WB/CW floodgates, with a writer detailing her horrible experience on One Tree Hill. (All of the actresses from that show are publicly supporting her.)

-Screw everyone who made Mel Gibson‘s new movie a box office success this weekend.

-I watched Lady Bird this weekend instead (it’s lovely) and then I immediately texted my childhood BFF because of the movie’s generous, perfect use of “Crash Into Me.” It also did crazy good at the box office. Expect Oscar buzz on this one.

Gal Gadot will reportedly only sign on for a Wonder Woman sequel if accused sexual harasser Brett Ratner is completely removed from the franchise. Bless her! (It just got an earlier release date, away from Star Wars, so I’m guessing she won.)

-A dozen cast and crewmembers told THR about the time in 2003 when actor Tom Sizemore was removed from a movie set in Utah for allegedly violating an 11-year-old girl.

-Because everything is terrible in Hollywood these days, someone asked Twitter for their stories about nice celebrity encounters and everyone delivered. (If you don’t want to read the whole thread, here are some highlights. This tweet about Chris Pine is my fave.)

-Thor: Ragnarok has started a jam war between Jack Black and Chris Hemsworth (except only one of them knows what that means).

-The early reviews for Justice League aren’t exactly glowing, but they’re not as horrible as I expected. So yay?

-I really like this article on Stranger Things and other genre shows/movies keeping female characters apart.

-Wait, is Blake Shelton really getting named People’s Sexiest Man Alive? REALLY?!

-I’m just going to pretend this GQ cover with Colin Kaepernick is actually People.

-If season 8 happens with Suits, it will likely be without Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle.

-White men are the minority in the L.A. Times’ directors roundtable this year.
